Austria isn't all that different to New Zealand. Snow-capped summits? Check. World-class ski fields? You bet. Sparkling mountain lakes? Plenty. Hiking to rival anywhere on earth? Pull on the boots and let's get a-rambling! Of course, on top of all that, this cut out of Europe brings frothy beers, the hometown of Mozart, the grandiose palaces of the Habsburgs in Vienna, art-filled Schonbrunn and Belvedere – the list is long. If it's taken your fancy this year, be sure to get searching for cheap flights to Austria from New Zealand. They'll almost certainly be indirect, with drops in ticket prices usual in less-popular months like October, November, April, and March.
